Hello there,
I have the following problem.
I try to compose a picture of different map layers (see file "mappreview") and lock every single element.
It looks fine in the preview but when I export it, the export file only shows the current extract (see file "finalmap"). And whn I duplicate the composer file, the duplicate also looks like the export file.
I am using version 2.10.1-Paris.
Please help

I found a work around by creating on composer file per map part, saving each as png and creating a new composer file where I added all parts as image.

Most likely you are using the "cache" setting for the map item, so it won't be redrawn unless you manually hit the refresh button. I think what you are trying to achieve could be done instead using a combination of selecting the "lock layers for map" and "lock styles for map" checkboxes in the map item properties.
